  2. Regimens of the Mind: Boyle, Locke, and the Early Modern Cultura Animi Tradition.Sorana Corneanu - 2011 - University of Chicago Press.

She argues that their experimental programs (...)

    Introduction: The Place of Natural History in Francis Bacon's Philosophy.Sorana Corneanu, Guido Giglioni & Dana Jalobeanu - 2012 - Early Science and Medicine 17 (1-2):1-10.

Both are described by Bacon as being “versatile” and “pliant.” In Bacon's system of knowledge, philosophy, as the domain of reason, starts from historiae and fabulae, once memory and the imagination (...)

In particular, coverage in the book is organized around the unifying theme of Bacon’s notion of appetite, which is considered in its natural, ethical, medical and political meanings. The book redefines the notions of experience and experiment in Bacon’s (...)
